34th Annual South Downs Way Walk
One of the longest established and most popular walking events in England begins on 7th June 2013. The 34th Annual South Downs Way Walk covers 100 miles of one of England's national trails. Highlights of the South Downs Way include the white chalk cliffs at beachy head, Winchester (the Saxon capital of England) with it's glorious 11th century Cathedral, and Devils Dyke - a stunning beauty spot carved by glaciers into a deep valley. The trail's location in the south of England means it is a perfect escape from city life, and has a calendar of events from organised walks, to cycling and mountain bike events, horse-riding, and even a marathon for the athletes among us. (We prefer to take our time and stick to a walking pace!)
The annual South Downs Way Walk is over 9 walking days, beginning at Eastbourne and ending in Winchester with a celebration reception on the evening of the last day, where participants can enjoy a very well earned glass of wine or beer! This annual walk takes place each June, changing direction each year, and has been enjoyed by hundreds of walkers from all across the globe.
This event is a great way to celebrate one of the finest national trails in England. A perfect summer walk, with traditional British seaside towns and glorious views along the way. Good luck to all the South Downs Way event's walkers!
